Comp. obedience - Prong Collar
I am thinking about getting a prong collar to improve Molly's heeling. From what I've read, I feel that it is almost necessary to use a prong collar to get a nice, polished heel. Is it possible to achieve it without one?
I guess I'm a little worried that the collar might diminish her love for training, especially for something she already isn't too thrilled about, like figure 8s. However, I've read how much a prong collar could improve a dog's heeling...
Does anyone have any insight? I will also ask my trainer next week.
(Just to be clear, the collar will only be used during training and not on walks.)
